BACKGROUND Studies on innate immunity have benefited from the introduction of zebrafish as a model system. Transgenic fish expressing fluorescent proteins in leukocyte populations allow direct, quantitative visualization of an inflammatory response in vivo. It has been proposed that this animal model can be used for high-throughput screens aimed at the(More)
Tissue injury has been employed to study diverse biological processes such as regeneration and inflammation. In addition to physical or surgical based methods for tissue injury, current protocols for localized tissue damage include laser and two-photon wounding, which allow a high degree of accuracy, but are expensive and difficult to apply. In contrast,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this work is to understand whether shared genetic influences can explain the association between obesity and cognitive performance, including slower and more variable reaction times (RTs) and worse response inhibition. METHODS RT on a four-choice RT task and the go/no-go task, and commission errors on the go/no-go task for 1,312 twins(More)
The popularity of smartphones makes them the most suitable devices to ensure access to services provided by smart cities; furthermore, as one of the main features of the smart cities is the participation of the citizens in their governance, it is not unusual that these citizens generate and share their own data through their smartphones. But, how can we(More)
2-Methoxyestradiol (2ME), an endogenous metabolite of 17β-estradiol, has been previously reported to possess antiangiogenic and antitumor properties. Herein, we demonstrate that the effects of this antiangiogenic steroid can be readily assayed in live zebrafish, introducing a convenient and robust new model system as a screening tool for both single cell(More)
Managing data within a research unit is not a trivial task due to the high number of entities to deal with: projects, researchers, publications, attended events, etc. When all these data are exposed on a public website, the need to have it updated is fundamental to avoid getting an incorrect impression of the group's performance. As research centres(More)
Since the creation of the Open Data Euskadi (ODE) initiative in 2009, one of its challenges has been the publication of government Open Data following the Linked Data principles. On the other hand, one of the challenges for the Semantic Sensor Web is the integration and fusion of data from heterogeneous sensor networks. In this short paper we present the(More)
